Hot Air Balloons – Old World Charm

I have featured Hot Air Balloons a few times on this blog. I find them fascinating and have presented them in a variety of fashions from colorful abstracts to actual photography. Today I am featuring four art prints where I used a “gothic” technique that replicates an oil painting style of that same name. For us today in paintings, the style generally creates an old world look with rich and warm earth-tone colors that we generally associate with medieval Europe into the  renaissance period.

I did this series for a client a number of years ago and featured one of the prints (not one I am posting today) back in 2014. I liked the series so much I ended up using it in one of our guest rooms.

    Ooh great series, Kirt. I like that you captured different stages of the balloons.
    Whenever I see one I think of “We rise by lifting others.” ― Robert Ingersoll. That’s what your work does too. Hugs.

    You captured them very well…
    The second one is my favorite and I liked the technique you used.
    Your guests will be delighted with your art work on their walls.
